speech because we didn't get the answers we want to know what is the end game. u.s. interests are gadhafi's got to go. killing him or capturing he's got to go because he's going to seek revenge on the united states of america. that will be his m.o. from here on out and he will sponsor terrorism unless he's gone. >> wait a minute now. he's been sponsoring terrorism. whose side are you on? are you with the terrorists, sarah, or are you with the president of the united states? did you hear that? after nine days in libya sarah palin wants an end game. now i know that palin isn't real big history buff so let's go to the archives. here is what president bush said about time tables four years after the start of the war in iraq. >> i believe artificial time tables of withdrawal would be a mistake. i will strongly reject an artificial timetable withdrawal and/or washington politicians trying to tell those who wear the uniform how to do their job. >> son of a gun. if president obama had used that kind of language last night, what do you think the palins and the boltons and the folks over at fox hav

. the u.s. did an investigation into working conditions there and found forced prostitution and forced abortions going on. but they were a jack abramoff client so it became part of an effort by lobbyists. tonight ralph reed was speaking at the iowa faith and freedom coalition all about making sure social issues and values maintain a key spot on the republican agenda. good-bye, john ensign. in a couple years i guess it's lucky that you'll be around for the big republican legal defense of the antigay marriage ban this year. maybe you can help with that or you can consult on the gingrich campaign or become a life coach specializing in how to resign with dignity. maybe. now it's time for "the ed show." good night. >>> good evening, americans. welcome to "the ed show" tonight fzol new york. this is what's on the table tonight. governor scott walker rejects talks with democratic senators even though most wisconsinites want him to just compromise. this standoff for labor rights is at a crucial tipping point. republicans are nervous tonight and the wisconsin 14 are live with us and they will r
through or four towns and now all of a sudden they can't move without u.s. -- excuse me -- coalition assistance. and we have now given that leadership for understandable reasons according to the president to share this burden to the coalition. >> mr. corb, how did the president do tonight? >> well, i thought he did terrific. and i think this was a good time for him to give the speech because he could say we have stopped the killing and we've turned it over to nato and i think what i liked best about it was he talked about the arguments of his opponents. he didn't just dismiss them. he said some people, you know, argue we shouldn't have gone on this regime change and he talked about the fact that we tried regime change by force in iraq and it's cost us over a trillion dollars and, you know, close to 5,000 american lives, over a hundred thousand iraqis. is that what you want? he also said this is not going to be won militarily, which we know, same way in afghanistan. even our commanders say it's not going to be won militarily. we're going to achieve our objective politically. we've tie

warning to shut off gas lines and stuff like that and of course republicans, they want to cut the u.s. g.s. budget but doesn't that sound like an important investment so gas lines don't blow up if we do have a severe earthquake? >> that's one of the things i find kind of bizarre about this. i was going through the continuing resolution. first of all, there is a lot of gimmickry in this continuing resolution because a fair amount of the money being saved are called rescissions which is money not spent anyway so the sense is we're returning money back to the treasury because it didn't spend all the money allotted, etcetera. but if you're going to make an argument from the most extreme libertarian perspective there are a few things you have to conceive of as basic public goods and things like tsunami warning systems, early warning systems for seismic events are clearly public good. even in the most kind of stripped down conception of a real kind of night watchman state, those are things you want the government doing. and in the general context of the federal budget do not cost that much mon
while more u.s. forces are joining the fight, what's that all about? robert greenwald is here to talk about it. one year ago, don't you remember the conversation, republicans said it would be armageddon if this health care reform bill passed. well, since armageddon never came, and since a lot more people are being covered, we thought we'd talk about it tonight. >>> and the glenn beck channel, believe it or not, it could be a reality. i have some programming ideas. it's all coming up. >>> this is the story that has me reupfittogh lk amic vte arehang i k,yepuican governors walker kasich and snider would be out of a job. walker, would now lose to barrett by seven points. in ohio, john kasich, well, he defeated incumbent ted strickland 49% to 47%. and at this point, strickland, well, i guess you could say he would just smoke kasich by 15 points. in michigan, rick snider, very radical, very anti-public education, walked to an 18-point victory over bernerro last fall. in a hypothetical do-over -- i like do-overs -- he would now beat snyder. now, in less than five months, has the light bulb
was u.s. attorney for seven years before that. i just -- it's hard to express why don't you feel ready. it's a feeling. it's hard to describe feelings sometimes. but in my heart, i don't believe i'm ready to be president. so why would i run. >> so why would he keep talking about it? let's bring in senior fellow media matters, eric, and the reverend al sharpton. gentlemen, great to have you with us tonight. eric, fox news suspending two people who i guess they're thinking about running for president, but maybe sarah palin isn't thinking. how does huckabee and palin escape this one? >> that's a good question. i mean, what the suspensions tell us is that fox news is much more of a political operation than it is a news organization. i mean, they continue to cultivate these candidates. they give them a national platform. they give them a cushy salary. they give them a safe haven. where did mike huckabee run to today to play damage control on the kenyan nonsense. he ran to bill o'reilly and fox news. last year they gave these would-be candidates something like 80 hours of air time that if yo
wisconsin wisconsin u.s. attorney and former wisconsin state attorney general under democratic governor jim doyle. ms. lautenberger great to have you with us tonight. thanks so much. >> it's an honor to be with you, ed. >> you bet. problem number one, as you see it, for scott walker at this hour legally. >> well, i think there are a number of issues here. a lot of them are potential legal issues but i think there are a couple that are important. number one is the law in wisconsin is still collective bargaining is the name of the game. and until the governor is capable of repealing that law he has an obligation to bargain collectively with the public sector unions. what we're seeing today is that the governor not only has denied sitting at the bargaining table, an unfair labor practice in wisconsin, but as well, the governor said today through his press spokesperson that he didn't have time for collective bargaining. >> okay. >> so we have that issue. >> all right. >> let's start with that. >> i want to talk about his possible legal problems. i mean, what problems could he face admitting tha
, and get it in the u.s. pipeline. it does happen what's happening worldwide on oil and gas. >> even after bloomberg reported that we've got an 18-year high supply of oil and gas? what about that? >> that's the nutty thing. you're absolutely right. we have a historic high of supply, and fairly stable demand. so when you say why are prices rising, it gives credence to the issue that speculators may be a having a big influence. we're looking at it. but if you go back to 2008, where we also had large supply, limited demand, ed, we saw prices of gas, as you reported, go over $4 a gallon. oil was at $147.27. there's no other reason that i can see, no one can explain why prices were that high. but we did have $200 billion of speculative interests come into the markets over a several-year period. and i think that helped spike prices up. again, i think they're tapping the gas pedal when they get into markets, if they have a big footprint. i'm not suggesting that they are driving it. certainly the middle east and other issues are having some impact also. >> commissioner, where does president obama
than a million u.s. jobs. john mccain and his corporate backers love these trade agreements. they helped send american jobs to underpaid foreigners and make sure the products like iphones are never made in the united states of america again. if you think this isn't related to what's going on in wisconsin and around the country you better think again. when you bust unions and get rid of their bargaining power it is easier to fire workers and shift their jobs overseas. when i slammed john mccain for not knowing iphones are made in china, i'm not doing it because he is old. i'm doing it because he doesn't care about the consequences. that's the takedown. >>> still ahead everyone is talking about gas prices, food prices, we'll tell you how wall street is making it happen. in the key decision facing president obama over what to do about it all. and democrats taking a stand for workers against the mitch daniels agenda in the hoosier state will go to an undisclosed location and talk to the leaders. we can't forget them. the leaders of the indiana 37. homes all across america: we cr
